IDDRC Investigators
Links are provided to a scientist's web site when available. If a scientist does not have an individual web site, a link is provided to the departmental web site or a direct e-mail link. These links will take you to a variety of departmental web sites at UAB. These external sites sometimes change links without telling us. If you need an e-mail or phone number and cannot find it in the links provided, please search the name on the main UAB Directory page. The links below each Project Leader's name provide summaries included in our application or go to sites that reflect the different themes of our research.

The UAB IDDRC Investigators are listed in two alphabetically ordered groups:
Project Leaders and Members. To locate Core directors and Core resources go to the Cores main page. For a single list of IDDRC scientists preceded by a listing of Core Directors that you can save for a resource or easy printing, download and save this PDF list. We do our best to keep these links up to date, but departments often change their links to us without warning.
